Introduction

I have been writing medical articles for my blog http://kennethkee.blogspot.com (A Simple Guide to Medical Condition) for the benefit of my patients since 2007.

My purpose in writing these simple guides was for the health education of my patients.

Health Education was also my dissertation for my Ph.D (Healthcare Administration).

I then wrote an autobiolographical account of his journey as a medical student to family doctor on his other blog http://afamilydoctorstale.blogspot.com.

This autobiolographical account A Family Doctor’s Tale was combined with my early A Simple Guide to Medical Conditions into a new Wordpress Blog A Family Doctor’s Tale on http://ken-med.com.

From which many free articles from the blog was taken and put together into 590 amazon kindle books and some into Smashwords.com eBooks.

Some people have complained that the simple guides are too simple.

For their information they are made simple in order to educate the patients.

The later books go into more details of medical conditions.

The first chapter is always from my earlier blogs which unfortunately tends to have typos and spelling mistakes.

Since 2013, I have tried to improve my spelling and writing.

As I tried to bring you the latest information about a condition or illness by reading the latest journals both online and offline, I find that I am learning more and improving on my own medical knowledge in diagnosis and treatment for my patients.

Just by writing all these simple guides I find that I have learned a lot from your reviews (good or bad), criticism and advice.

I am sorry for the repetitions in these simple guides as the second chapters onwards have new information as compared to my first chapter taken from my blog.

I also find repetition definitely help me and maybe some readers to remember the facts in the books more easily.

I apologize if these repetitions are irritating to some readers.

Overactive Bladder

What is the Overactive Bladder?

The Overactive Bladder is defined as urgency to pass urine with or without urge incontinence and usually with frequency and nocturia.

Overactive bladder is a medical disorder in which the bladder squeezes urine out at the wrong time.

An overactive bladder is present if you have two or more of the following symptoms:

1. Urinate eight or more times a day or two or more times at night

2. Have the sudden, strong urge to urinate immediately

3. Leak urine during a sudden, strong urination urge

4. Have incontinence which is the loss of bladder control.

OAB maybe categorized into 2 forms:

1. OAB wet is OAB with incontinence.

2. OAB dry is OAB without incontinence.

OAB symptoms are more common in females than in males.

What is overactive bladder syndrome?

A bladder which contracts suddenly without control when the bladder is not full is considered to be an overactive bladder.

Overactive bladder syndrome occurs when no cause can be found for the repeated and uncontrolled bladder contractions.

Overactive bladder syndrome may be known as an irritable bladder or detrusor muscle instability. (Detrusor is the medical name for the bladder muscle.)

The Bladder and its Function

The kidneys make urine all the time.

A small amount of urine is constantly passing to the bladder down the ureters (the tubes from the kidneys to the bladder).

Different amount of urine is produced depending on how much you drink, eat and sweat.

The bladder is a muscular organ which stores the urine.

It enlarges like a balloon as the urine is emptied into it.

The outlet for urine (the urethra) is normally kept closed.

The muscles beneath the bladder that surround around the urethra (the pelvic floor muscles) help to keep the bladder opening closed.

A person only knows that the bladder is getting full only when a certain amount of urine is in the bladder.

The bladder muscle will contracts and the urethra and pelvic floor muscles relax when you go to the
